Angel Records First Concert Summer Fare Series, 1978 Centennial Season
Ringing in the Centennial
Tonight's opening concert of our 100th season was preceded by a work commissioned by the Musical Society for this special occasion--"Phantasm for Carillon" by Gary White, Professor of Music at Iowa State University, performed on the Baird Carillon atop Burton Tower by Hudson Ladd, UM carillonneur. It is the first of six new works to be premiered by the Musical Society during this centennial celebration--three commissioned by the Musical Society and three by the School of Music. "Phantasm" will be performed again by Mr. Ladd during a carillon recital which begins at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, July 10.
Elisabeth Schwarzkopf's licder interpretations have brought her fame unequaled by any other singer, and she has been called "the greatest lieder singer of our day" by English critic, Andrew Porter. Her first American recital at New York's Town Hall was one of the most spec?tacular and widely discussed debuts ever made in this country.
For the second year in a row, Miss Schwarzkopf combines her performing artistry with master classes at the School of Music. Tonight's recital, her fourth Ann Arbor appearance, climaxes a weeklong residency of twicedaily master classes, in which she was joined by her husband Walter Legge, noted impresario and musicologist, and founder of London's Philharmonia Orchestra and Chorus.
John Wiisiman, prominent coachaccompanist, is a graduate of the University of Michigan School of Music and is currently a faculty member of the University of Illinois. He frequently serves as musical partner to artists such as Birgit Nilsson, Nicolai Gedda, Luciano Pavarotti, Roberta Peters, Cesare Siepi, and Miss Schwarzkopf, in recitals throughout the United States. He recently appeared with Pavarotti on nationwide television, marking the first live telecast of a recital from the stage of New York's Metropolitan Opera House. Performing again with Miss Schwarzkopf in tonight's concert brings Mr. Wustman's total number of appearances in Ann Arbor under Musical Society auspices to seven.
